Visualization Conference Selects 8 NYU School of Engineering Papers

The premiere conference for data visualization will feature eight research papers co-authored by NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering faculty members from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.

“The selection of so many papers and their wide range of topics—from climate and biological visual analytics to sports visualization—is gratifying and signals the impressive growth of data analysis and visualization at the NYU School of Engineering over the last three years,” said Professor Nasir Memon, head of the department.

The papers will be presented at the IEEE VIS 2014, which will be held November 9-14, 2014, in Paris, and includes conferences on Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST); Information Visualization (InfoVis), and Scientific Visualization (SciVis). IEEE was founded as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

The department faculty members who co-authored the papers are: Assistant Professor Enrico Bertini, Research Assistant Professor Harish Doraiswamy, Professor Juliana Freire, Research Assistant Professor David Koop, Professor Claudio Silva, Research Assistant Professor Huy T. Vo, and Postdoctoral Fellow Aritra Dasgupta. Freire is also the director of graduate studies for the NYU Center for Data Science and an associated faculty for the Center for Urban Science & Progress (CUSP).  Silva is also the head of disciplines for CUSP and holds faculty appointments in NYU’s Center for Data Science and the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.

Five doctoral students in the department were co-authors: Nivan Ferreira, Josua Krause,  Anshul Vikram Pandey, Jorge Poco, and Bowen Yu.

Other NYU professors  were among those who co-authored the papers with faculty of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering: Oded Nov, an associate professor in the school’s Department of Technology Management and Innovation, and Richard Bonneau, an associate professor in NYU’s Department of Biology and a member of the computer science faculty at NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
